The Greatest Show on Earth

Canvas Corp Brands has a new #ccbchallenge up and this time, it's "Let's Visit the Cinema" - any type of project that has to with the movies, whether a particular movie, popcorn, movie tickets - you name it.  This is the first of two entries for me.  

My take on the theme takes us to the circus & 'The Greatest Show on Earth'! Ladies & gentlemen - I direct your attention to the center ring!

I had a set of blank wooden nesting 'dolls' and transformed them into vintage circus decor using paper bags, vintage fussy-cut pics & clipart of all things circus, and various embellishments.

Since I added some embellishments that made some of the containers bulky, they only nest with tops on until you get to the next to the last one - the extra fun was too much to keep the lid on! But who cares - I want to show these babies off - no nesting is no problem!

Some distressing with ink, folds & wrinkles, & a mixture of Tattered Angels Coffee Shop Glimmer Mist & Iridescent Silver Glimmer Mist brushed on makes these lovelies stand out. I hope you can see the shimmer - I wanted to keep the vintage look but with some subtle sparkle.

This set is a real 3-ring circus! Had to do one in B&W for a film noir affect 😎and a couple other exposures for fun.  I hope you enjoyed the show!
